Lost Ark is a Diablo-esque MMORPG by Smilegate and Tripodstudio. The game sports the traditional isometric birds-eye-view and mixes it with its own blend of combat mechanics that make it different from the pack. Lost Ark also features a vast open-world filled with puzzles that require more user interaction than simply just hacking n slashing.
Right now, Lost Ark is only available to Korea and Russia, but after a publishing agreement between Smilegate and Amazon, it could come to the west.
